Ratings Roundup for the Week of November 7, 2021


NBC had a bit of a busy week last week. First the good news. Fans of La Brea can rest easy, the show was renewed last week for a second season. Fans of the Peacock's other two freshman shows were not so lucky. Ordinary Joe was preempted last week for the network premiere of the pilot episode of The Lost Symbol (which has already aired on the Peacock streaming service). It will return this week, but fans should be on notice that things are not looking good for the show. Home Sweet Home was also pulled last week with no word on if, when, or where its remaining episodes will air.

ABC saw the return of its Thursday drama block after a few weeks off. Station 19 was even with its last new episode. Grey's Anatomy was up a tenth. Big Sky was also steady, but low. The only thing saving it and The Rookie right now is Queens which probably won't see a back nine order.

CBS had a workmanlike week last week. The Equaliser, FBI: International, and Ghosts were all even. NCIS: Hawai'i lost a tenth. Good news for CSI: Vegas fans, the show was up a tenth over last week. The bad news is there is still no word on a back nine episode order for the show. The silence is becoming rather deafening and fans may want to enjoy what episodes remain. Bull lost three hundred thousand viewers last week and it may not have much of a future left either.

FOX returned to more of a normal schedule last week. A hefty NFL overrun gave the Sunday animation block a healthy boost. 9-1-1 was down a tenth. Our Kind Of People returned after a couple of weeks off. The good news is it was steady with its last new episode. The bad news is that's still far too low to expect any sort of back nine order or a renewal. The Big Leap lost another two hundred thousand viewers and is also likely done.

The CW may have actually done the unheard of for them, they may have yanked a show from the schedule. Killer Camp has been missing in action for the last three weeks, the block filled with repeats of Masters Of Illusion. It is also now missing from the network's website. Looks like the show was quietly shuffled off. Legends of the Hidden Temple managed to pick up a tenth but it probably won't last either. Walker and All American were both steady. DC's Legends of Tomorrow, 4400, and Batwoman all lost one hundred thousand viewers. Supergirl closed out its run up one hundred thousand viewers from the previous week.

I really hope NBC doesn't kill The Lost Symbol. It was the only good thing Peacock ever released. In general everything, NBC released in the last few years were weak (or at least not for me). 

At least there is CBS even if they decide to lock everything behind a paywall. Still better than murdering outright. 

I can't say one way or the other about The Lost Symbol as its parent network is a streamer, so how it does on the parent network is moot. How they decide what gets renewed and what doesn't is a mystery of thought. Sometimes, I think they just throw darts at a board. :) 

And I agree NBC has not had the best luck that last couple of seasons with their freshman shows. Their comedies in particular have bombed one after the other. There's a reason they are resurrecting Law & Order for another go around. Here's hoping that works better than the poor result from bringing back Will & Grace
